Which eggs are old, and which ones are safe to use?

I confused last Sunday about eggs in the fridge since working long hours again and not good enough time to spend in the kitchen. They were out of the boxes and I had no idea which one is old, bought earlier, fresh enough for breakfast or not.
The best way is keeping them in their original box in the fridge then see the expire date..
Anyway,here is one easy way of aging eggs I want to share with you guys.

Fill up the glass with cold water and put eggs in it. As eggs age, they lose some of their moisture and  begin to float in water.

1- Really fresh egg  - Lies on the bottom the glass, flat.
2-At least one week- One end bobs up a bit, it is older, but still good. You might use them baking,   also ideal for hard boiling. Because fresh eggs are impossible to peel.
3-At least 3 weeks-  Top end touches to buttom first but won't sit on the bottom. It is getting old.       I personaly don't use floating eggs - No matter float low or high!
4-A floating egg is a bad egg. Don't use it!

Aria wanted an soft boiled egg instead scramled last Sunday and this knowladge from the site was so helpful! I used the older ones for a chocolate cake and decorated left over cookie crumbs:) 
I seperated  the eggs and had 2 eggs floating. I don't like wasting food though:(
Do you know any other way of aging eggs?
Upcoming recipies. Bell pepers filled with rice, cucumber&yogurt salad, another eggplant recipe(since I learned eggplant helps prevent colon and stomach cancer cooking it often) and more...
Spending time in the kitchen relaxes me..

  5. I never knew this trick! Thanks so much for the tip. I've always kept eggs in the egg carton. If I didn't, I'd surely end up with a bad egg now and then!

  8. wonderful tips, yonca!
    i had no idea about this.
    thanks for the great tips!


  9. I never knew that. I didn't know you could find out by floating them in water. Very cool tips! Thank you :)

  10. That is a great trick. I had no idea how to tell if eggs were still fresh. I don't buy them often and usually keep them in the carton but even then I wonder sometimes if they are still good.
    Thanks Yonca!

  11. Thank you for some οther іnfοrmаtive ѕіte.
    Where else could Ι am getting that kind of infο written in ѕuch an idеal apρroach?
    I havе a project that I'm simply now operating on, and I have been at the glance out for such information.

    Here is my webpage ... media temple special offer code

  12. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  13. I've never checked an egg but I suppose I should do that!

  14. A floating egg is a bad egg. How did I not know to be checking!!

    PS My site moved a wee bit to WordPress and I hope you can still find me!

  15. A fascіnating discuѕsion is definitely worth cоmment.
    Thеre's no doubt that that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don't dіscuss such issues.

    Tο the next! Cheers!!

  16. Yes ladies! I wouldn't need a check if all eggs would be in their original box as usual, before started to work but I am working 10 hours so.. not eveything is under my control lately. I'm OK with that. At least I ended up with aging eggs.Lol, I might find a pair of socks instead eggs in the fridge with a man and a11 years old boy though :)
    Stephanie, yes I still see you and
    checked your new home already.Good luck!

  17. This is such a very useful post! Thanks for sharing!! I will start using this from now on.

  18. Like the others, Yonca, I've never heard of this. Of course, I just did show and tell for my daughters and our egg passed the test! :)

  19. This is the method my mom always used :) It works great!

  20. Breeding finches is not as hard as many would think. Succeeding feeding all through out the day can also be done but only in small quantity.
